It was around this time last year, SanDisk broke the ground by introducing the then world’s highest capacity microSDXC memory card with 128GB. Over the year since its introduction, 128GB has fast became a norm, but that doesn’t mean users of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, have enough. Nope. Storage is never enough. Thankfully, SanDisk were hard at work between then and now, and again serve up another world’s highest capacity microSD card with a whopping 200GB capacity. Man. Some laptops of today don’t even have that kind of capacity, but it will soon be available to your mobile devices, well, provided that your devices support it.

SanDisk pushes the envelope further by leveraging the proprietary technology used to developed last year’s 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card, which the firm created a new design and production process that afford more bits per die. Along with an insanely massive capacity, the 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I Card Premium Edition also offers fast transfer speed of up to 90MB/s, which means it can move up to 1,200 images per minute.

But do you really need the whole 200GB of it? Perhaps. Especially if you are those who hate clearing old photos and videos to make way for the new, or you insist on shooting 4K resolution on your 4K-capable smartphone. In case you do, you will have to be prepared to pay a hefty price for it. The 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I Card, Premium Edition is expected to retail for a cool $399.99 when it hit the market sometime in the second quarter of this year. Yes. 400 bucks for a microSD card. It must be the first, right?
